This picture shows a Brandywine tomato plant on May 23rd and again today. I've done my best to get their relative sizes correct by matching up the scale of the various bits of wood/rock at their base. Before this all that was left of the original plant was a broken off stalk. I've been really impressed with its recovery overall. To add to that I've read in multiple places that 'suckers' don't produce tomatoes. With all of the flowers coming in on this plant, that is essentially just suckers I don't buy that line for a moment.
Update: The Tomato plant continues to do very well, it's getting huge and is covered in flowers and some very early fruits.
